Bought 5 straight gold rush today after work. 000-004. ALL LOSERS. I WAS SO MAD. I figured I would at least win my money back because I've won $500 on 001 and I know people that have won $500 on low numbers. I'm never buying a scratch off again.

Yeah don't believe the hype on early number tickets. I got a few 000 & 001 cause of the same reason and rarely won. Just random luck, unless you're a lottery vendor apparently lol.

    Since I have been having relatively bad luck recently with Super Millions (6 losers in a row over the past 2 weeks), I decided to buy the old $20 Lucky $200K for Life.  I usually have good luck with the end of the roll vs the beginning.  So when I noticed there were only the last 5 tickets left (#45-49) I bought all five (which I almost never do because it usually results in an ugly loss).

    The result:

    #45:  $20 winner

    #46:  $20 winner

    #47:  $20 winner

    #48:  $30 winner

    #49:  loser

    So I defied the odds by getting 4 out of 5 winners but still ended down $10.  It would have been nice if even one of the winners was significant.

      Bought a 6 of the new Chili Pepper Tripler.

      Last two tickets #67 - $15 Winner and #68 - WINALL symbol $10 WINNER.

      Thought I would have hit a $100 winner on it, lol.

      Oh well, $25 win isn't so bad, lol.

        New Gold Rush Probably Coming Soon

        The latest Florida Lottery Flamingo Forum questionnaire asked for input on new Gold Rush ticket designs. This probably means a new Gold Rush later this year. Other questions involved holiday lottery scratch ticket designs...

          Thanks for the heads up, I saw there was a new survey available but haven't done it yet. Additionally, I think we regular players should make a concerted effort to write the lottery and demand the odds for the $500 level are in line with previous Gold Rush games, and express our discontent for the worsening of odds for the newer games they have released.

              Ed, hey man. They email them, I don't recall exactly how it goes-- but if you go to the FL lottery website and create an account, I think they will just automatically email you updates. Take a look at the site and create an account, and there's probably an option to sign up for email announcements, etc... 

              We should all email them anyway and tell them we will boycott if the odds are anywhere near as bad as the other games.

                Jim - I have an account with Florida Lottery and just now check marked the box to be contacted for upcoming new game info etc ....... I also wrote a nice note to the lottery asking to please keep the same odds for the upcoming new Gold Rush game as current and previous ....... we'll see what happens when it happens ............. stuck around the counter for a little while this morning at Publix watching people buy and cash in their scratchers - in a space of about 5 minutes !!  I saw one SM $500 - one $500 MONO and a $500 GRT all bought and cashed while I was there, from either the machine or counter ........ I still havn't bought any ....... boy that's a bunch of winners in a short period of time to see !!!!

                  I am glad someone else is paying attention to this.  I am going to send a letter as well.  I think the record ticket sales and the Florida Lottery's desire to grow in a saturated and mature market is making them cut corners.  The overall prize structures are inferior to older games and top prizes are now being paid over 25 years instead of 20 years in order to lower the lump sum payouts.  Basically, they are nickeling and diming us to death to squeeze every bit of profit out of the games.  They can do so because they are getting records sales and there are no consequences if people keep buying tickets anyways.

                          It was just the one ticket I bought after I cashed in a  10 dollar winner leaving me 5 bucks to get something small to eat.  I showed the clerk and he photocopied it to hang on the wall and I bought the guy I was in line with who was happy for me  his gas and a scratch-off.

                           

                          And thanks guys, I really needed this to pay for RN school in August.  Looks like I won't have to take out a student loan after all.  I still can't believe it I feel like throwing up.
